There was a moment last night against Maribor when Liverpool went into pure footballing overdrive.
We were 4-0 up and were quite keen to continue piling misery onto our Slovenian opponents…
This move, which Gini Wijnaldum failed to finish off, was a thing of beauty.
It involved James Milner, Mo Salah, Coutinho and Roberto Firmino in what was some of the most aesthetically pleasing one-touch buildup play we’ve seen all season – from any team.
We’ve watched it ten times already this morning and can’t believe our Dutch forward couldn’t capitalise and score his first ever goal away from home!
When Liverpool are purring like this, there are not many teams who can live with us.
Hopefully, we maintain this level of performance for the weekend tie with Tottenham at Wembley, which is undoubtedly going to be a step up considering they just drew with Real Madrid at the Bernabeu.
What might benefit us though is that Maurcio Pochettino’s teams rarely park the bus, which will at least enable a proper game of football.
